I can't comment on the hot liquids as I hardly ever drink anything hot, but for cold liquids, not much better - at least nothing that I've ever used that can be carried without leaking! I put ice cubes in at 7am & when I get back between 5-7pm, there are still multiple ice cubes still remaining - and this is after a full day on trail in 80+ degrees!
As far as durability, seems pretty good - had it for about 6 weeks and nothing besides a few minor scratches. Only issue I've had is not seating the lid correctly which allows it to leak, but that's more my fault than the bottle. Hydroflask is also great with any issues - I have an older 18oz bottle that the lid cracked - they mailed me a new one, no questions asked.

I've run multiple mud/obstacle races, including Mudder & Spartan Beast w/ the Ventilator - they performed great, no issues with chafing & dried off quickly. Ran Beast a few weeks ago in them & they were a great addition - 47 degrees & rain to end & my legs were never cold once outside of the water

I'm pretty sure these are mt10s with a different mesh upper & dwr, and if that's the case, they are quite durable - mine have a few hundred miles on them & lots of daily wear. The lugs are all still good, slightly worn over mid foot & a bit on the heel, other than that, just slight wear along the sides of the metatarsal band from brush, but just cosmetic. Get them, your legs will quit before they do!

Great shirt - this shirt wears great - doesn't have that odd hang that synthetic shirts seem to all have (at least on me), but has almost all the great features - quick drying (quick river crossings, under a pack), doesn't stink, and packs up nice & small, and great smooth feel against the skin.
Only issue I have with this shirt is the fit seems to be a little tight across the shoulders/chest for me - 6'1, 200, but nothing that stops me from wearing it and loving it!

Love this board! This thing loves to turn, the only board I've ever ridden where I could get myself dizzy. Spent a whole day demo'ing one & a friend rides it regularly, so spent some time on it - can't comment on pow float personally, but a ton of fun around the mountain. Great pop off ANY hit you want to take, but like any board w/ full rocker, lose a bit of edge hold compared to a camber board. That said, it never feels out of control or like its washing out.
Basically, in multiple days riding this board, never failed to finish a run w/out a big smile on my face - and isn't that what it all comes down to?!?

These are very warm and comfortable mitts - if you don't plan on getting too wet or dirty. If you're going to be throwing tricks or spending anytime w/ your hands in the pow or moisture, step up to the Gore Mitt and enjoy the much better waterproofing. You also get a nice vent/heater pocket which is a great addition.
